I reached for a 20 oz. bottle of soda… whoa, $1.77 Deja Vu~!
I turned around and…
I noticed that ordinarily the 67 ounce of soda is only 22¢ more ($1.99) but today is 52¢ less at $1.25.
Spend 72¢ more and you’ll have 144 ounces.
Here I am trying to pick up a drink to go with my pizza and I’m stuck doing math in my head.. because here’s what they are selling:
For $5, I get to decide wether I’d prefer
Three 20 oz bottles (60 oz.) or
Four 2 liter bottles (270 oz.) or
Twenty-four 12 oz. cans (288 oz.)
For the same amount of money, you choose wether you’d like 60 oz or 288 oz. If they advertised “Buy one, Get 4 free” they wouldn’t have enough Coke for the crazed.
I find this to be something interesting because it pisses me off. The 20 oz bottle is five times overpriced so I fell for their scheme. Since I walked in to buy a soda which would have cost me $1.77, I chose to spend 77¢ more and leave with nearly 7 x the 20 oz. soda. Yep, I spent 77¢ more but it will save me six trips to that store. I’m six times less likely to shop there.
After I got the soda, this guy buying snack food would not let me pass him, blocking the aisle as he walked. Since I didn’t really care, I tested his intention by trying to pass on the left.. He breathed heavily, 100% aware I was behind him and attempting to pass but wouldn’t yield. People can be so strange.
